  • Box Office Bomb: Even with a scant $14 million budget, it took a loss with a measly $11 million global take. Adjusted for inflation, it currently has the worst opening for a movie opening in 3,000 screens ever, and it ended up being the lowest grossing Nickelodeon movie to date.
  • Dawson Casting: The only teenage main character that was actually played by a teenager is Wren (played by the then-19 Victoria Justice); all the other teen characters were in their twenties, with the oldest (Thomas McDonnel and Osric Chau, both 26) being only eleven years younger than Chelsea Handler, who played Wren's mom.

  • Follow the Leader: The movie liberally borrows the tagline and "worn-out heroes" poster from The Hangover.
  • Star-Derailing Role: Victoria Justice was already headlining the Nickelodeon Kid Com Victorious when its executives tried to make her into a movie star with this film. After it became a poorly-received Box Office Bomb, the Nick higher-ups lost interest in promoting Justice and cancelled Victorious within a year. It certainly didn't help matters that her Victorious co-star Ariana Grande was simultaneously turning herself into a much bigger sensation than anyone could've anticipated.
